post #9011 of 22194
finished another minor project addition to my Rig, another step towards my ultimate dream machine....

I added a couple LED bars, I need to add some sort of switch now however. They look fantastic, especially with the black sparkle bitspower fittings, they shine immensely and I love it. However the LEDs are almost too bright, light seeps through from all angles of the case, and small spaces such as inbetween flex bay mounts or panel jams appear "unflush." Trying to brainstorm a way to alleviate this.

Also got a new 31mm top to replace my stock one, as I wanted to add some new fans without having to drain my loop and remount the top rad. Before I only had 5 fans despite 840mm of Radiator space, and only 3 of them were even brand name(Corsair SP120s). Now that I added 6 Noiseblocker NB-12 2400rpms as a Push/pull exhaust at the top, it made a suprisingly large difference in temperature for me. Brought the 4930k to 4.5ghz at 1.396v, while never exceeding 65c.

Still needs alot of work, but I got a ton of wiring work done. I was able to install a new PowerAdjust 3 from AC to go with my Aquaero, so now I can control all my fans and my MCP35x pumps from the LCD or desktop. These things are awesome, if you considering getting any kind of Aquaero and dont mind the hefty price tag, I highly recommend it.









I still plan on adding a few more upgrades, however im not sure what I should prioritize.

I really want to fix my cabling. Im going to purchase PCI extensions for the graphics cards. I really want to achieve the extremely clean setup thats seen so often, where all 10 cables leaving the GPU port are perfectly lined up across one another, and with minimal slack. However im not sure if I should get single braid or more, or which clamps to get, or even whether I should get red or black..... Any suggestions and help would be much appreciated smile.gif

I also plan on adding a PCI slot cover that has a couple G1/4" panel mount fittings that I can connect a hose and QDC coupling with, as I want to be able to connect external radiators or cooling kits, or even perhaps a pedestal in the future with relative ease.

Lastly, I have been very interested in Aquacomputers Airplex radiators. However being as pricey as they are, im a little skeptical. Im also concerned whether two MCP35Xs are enough power to support this particular loop now, as the amount of angles and tight corners is substantial and will only grow worse. I really wish I would have purchased D5s before, but nevertheless, both these pumps and my PMP-400s have worked very well.

Thanks for anyone who read, suggestions welcome wink.gif

Awesome looking builds!! I can't wait to get both my case, and components and slowly piece it all together in a build. smile.gif

I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions to go with it too. One of which is, has anyone thought of using something along the lines of "conduit" for the cabling? Speaking of that, anyone have a good source for custom length cables? Or am I going to have to resort to making my own? hehe.

I'm sure its been done - conduit. There is a guy currently building into an ST10 using rigid wires

or you can always get familiar with the Cable & Sleeving forum

Awesome! Thank you. That rigid wiring looks awesome! Granted my lack of experience doesn't allow for something like that sadly. Just like when I go to add in a WC setup, I'll have to go with the "normal" flex tubing and not acrylic for quite a while. I will most likely get some in the future to "practice" with and slowly replace the flexible tubing piece by piece.

I think I'm over my mini-ITX phase. Looking at going big but can't decide on what..

Does CL do trade-ins, like they would at a car lot? lol. How about a lease? smile.gif
post #9016 of 22194
Stick, you need an intervention.
post #9017 of 22194
Haha c'mon man, it's been at least two months since I touched my rig. That's an eternity in Stick time. I was thinking of just doing a pedestal with 2x RX240 V3 in it. But not having the option for more GPUs or a new Haswell-E has me buggin'. So IDK, in reality a 3570K and 280X are plenty for me. And my cooling is already running sub 10C delta under full load. But I have this desire for more that pushes it's way to the front of my head every couple of weeks that I have trouble fending off!!

Any S5 owners here (didn't see any in the last dozen pages)?

How is the case for noise/vibration? My current Lian-Li is a bit picky about hard drive placement, and sometimes resonates annoyingly under load.

There are about 8-10 owners I know of including me. I have it tore down waiting for a 5820K but when I had a loop and hard drive installed, I didn't notice pump or drive vibration.
